​But After The Gig (Reprise)

This song is by Ballast and appears on the album Sound Asleep (2005).

You're right up front
You know all the words
You're very good at playing at 'em passioned and concerned
Point your righteous finger at imaginary foes
Less talk, more rock
Because we already know
But no, after the gig I can see
You haven't learned a thing
Devoid of sincerity
You're just as bad as them
If we're pointing fingers
I'm pointing mine at you
You're so full of big talk but what do you do
You wasted your potential
You pissed your youth away
You're just a fashion victim
Who has nothing to say
No, after the gig I can see you
You haven't learned a thing
Devoid of sincerity
You're just as bad as them
What would you say and who would you be
Without your prefabricated punk rock identity
Fashionably jaded, thinly veiled racist
Hipster parasite, drunken date, rapist
Play the role they've handed you oh so fucking well
Say you hate the mainstream, but can't you see it in yourself
Think you're protected by that shroud of irony but all your drunken posturing doesn't mean shit to me
You fill me with your revulsion, make me want to gag
With every faggot joke you make and every ass you grab
Not concerned with much besides your bitching punk rock hair
Someday we're going to change this world
I hope you won't be there
